Western Sydney University’s Parramatta campus will host the Sensing the West Forum next week, organised by the NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) in collaboration with WSU, the Celestino Sydney Science Park Urban Living Lab and CSIRO.

According to a statement from NSSN on Monday, the day-long event on March 13 will be opened by NSW minister for innovation Anoulack Chanthivong, and include expert panel discussions and workshops about “planning, building and construction, service delivery, and the environment, with a particular focus on the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.”

“Smart sensors can play a critical role in solving key challenges in planning, building and construction, delivery of services and environmental outcomes in new development sites,” said NSSN Smart Cities & Natural Hazards Theme Lead Peter Runcie. 

“For example, sensors can measure disease and water leaks in pipes; monitor air quality and heat; accurately understand land use; and measure the quality of buildings and infrastructure.”

NSSN’s website lists confirmed speakers as

– Anoulack Chanthivong;

– Scott McKillop – General Manager, Western Sydney Airport;

– Rory Brown, Executive Director, Smart Places, Transport for NSW;

– Luke Nicholls, Director, Western Sydney Planning Partnership;
